Is constantly using the supercharge on your Tesla going to decrease the battery life?

    So, got my Tesla last week, and since I have a Supercharge 10mins away, I've been charging my car at the SC before I install my home charger. So, is it going to decrease the battery life if I keep doing it? Thanks.

    No, it won't. Car is designed for it.

    But get your home charger installed soon! Much more convenient. And the polite thing to do.
